OPERATING YOUR VACUUM SEALER

USING MAGIC VAC BAGS

1.Place the unit on a dry, flat surface. Plug the unit in. Turn the unit on.

2.Select bag size. Bag rolls are available in two widths, 8” and 111/2”. Choose the bag size to suit items to be stored. Pull out enough of the bag roll to hold items to be vacuum packed plus an additional 3”. Allow another 1” for each time the bag will be opened and resealed. If you select Pre-Cut Bags, skip to step 7.

3.Cut the bag. When the correct length of bag has been determined, press the Bag Cutter Blade and keeping it pressed down, start from either side of the bag and slide it for the necessary distance according to width. This

way you will cleanly and precisely cut a piece to the desired size.

4.Seal the first end of the bag. Lift the Lid until you hear a click. Place an open end of the cut bag on the Seal Bar with smooth side facing up. NOTE: DO NOT let bag hang into

the Vacuum Chamber or on the Gripping Gaskets.

5.Engage vacuum. Close the Lid. Push down on the front

5

corners of the Lid with your thumbs and push the

Vacuum Locks into the locked position. The appliance will carry out a vacuum packing cycle. Wait until the SEAL light goes off. Press down on the rounded recessed area of the Release Valve to release the Lid. Lift the Lid and remove the bag with the sealed end.

6.Check seal. The completed seal is a smooth straight line. There will be no wrinkles in the seal. If there are, trim the seal away, and repeat the sealing process if you think the bag is still large enough. If not, cut a new bag.

7.Fill bag to be vacuum packed. Put food in bag. Wipe off liquid and food particles from area inside of bag to be sealed.

8.Vacuum pack the bag. Lift the Lid until you hear a click. Lay the filled bag in front of the unit and place open end into the Vacuum Chamber. Close the Lid. Push down on the front corners of the Lid with your thumbs and push the Vacuum Locks into the locked position. The appliance will carry out a vacuum packing cycle. Wait until the SEAL light goes off. Press down on the rounded recessed area of the Release Valve to release the Lid. Lift the Lid and remove the bag.

9.How to use the Manual Seal. Pressing this button causes the SEAL light to go on and the sealing process starts immediately. This allows you to prevent delicate, fragile foods from being crushed (e.g. biscuits, etc.).

10.Stopping the appliance. Vacuuming can be stopped at any time by pressing down the Release Valve on the rounded recessed area and holding it down until the appliance stops.

11.Store vacuum packed products properly. All perishable foods need to be refrigerated or frozen to prevent spoilage.

OPEN A SEALED BAG

Cut bag straight across with scissors, just inside the seal.

USING THE JAR ATTACHMENT

NOTE: The following instructions are for use with the wide (included) or small (not included) mouth jar attachment.

1.Fill jar. Make sure that jar is not filled to the top. Leave at least 1” space at the top for the vacuum to operate properly. Note: Be sure to use the wide mouth canning jars with the wide mouth attachments, and small mouth canning jars with the small mouth attachments.

2.Placement of jar lid. Make sure that the rim of the jar and the seal of the lid are clean and free of food particles before placing lid on container. Note: DO NOT use the metal ring when vacuum sealing the jar. Once

the jar is vacuum packed, place the ring on the jar and tighten to ensure a secure seal.

3.Placement of jar attachment. Place Jar Attachment directly over lid on top of jar. Push down firmly.

4.Connect jar attachment. Push one end of the Accessory Hose firmly into the Jar Attachment. Push the other end firmly into the Hose Port on the Lid.

5.Engage vacuum. Close the Lid on the Select. Push down on the front corners of the lid with your thumbs and push the Vacuum Locks into the locked position. The machine will carry out a vacuum packing cycle and turn off automatically on its completion.

6.Remove jar attachment. Remove the tube from the Canister Lid Knob. Turn the Knob to “CLOSED” position.

OPENING A VACUUM SEALED CANNING JAR

1.Wedge a spoon between the highest part of the threaded rim on jar and jar lid.

2.Carefully turn the spoon to release the lid. Be careful NOT to bend the lid so you can reuse it.

NOTE: Vacuum Packaging is not a substitute for canning. PERISHABLE FOODS AND LIQUIDS MUST BE STORED IN REFRIGERATOR OR FREEZER.

Hints and Tips

Juices and moisture in foods can prevent a good seal,

 

therefore, we recommend to pre-freeze food for 1-2

 

hours before vacuum packaging. An alternative

 

method is to fold a paper towel. Fill the bag with food

 

and lay flat. Place the folded towel so it lies between

 

the top of the bag and the food. Ensure that the paper

 

towel is below the sealing strip. When you vacuum

 

seal, the paper towel will absorb the excess moisture.

Liquids need to be cooled before vacuum packing. Hot

 

liquids will bubble up and over the top of the jar when

 

vacuum packed. Note: A jar attachment is necessary

 

for sealing jars.

Use canning lids that have been checked for flaws. To

 

create and keep a good vacuum, soak lids in boiling

 

water for 3 minutes and rub a drop of mineral oil on

 

the gasket. This will lubricate and hydrate the gasket.

 

After vacuum packing, you may use the metal rim that

 

comes with the jar in order to hold the lid in place.

 

This rim is meant to assist in keeping the vacuum

 

sealed lid secure.

Store perishable foods in the freezer or refrigerator.

 

Vacuum packing extends the shelf life of foods, but

 

does not preserve them.

Many foods are sold pre-packed in commercial vacu-

 

um bags such as cheese and deli meats. Now, you can

maintain the taste and freshness of these foods, by repackaging with Deni Magic Vac™ Bags after the commercially packed bags have been opened.

Pantry items such as flour, rice, mixes for cakes and pancakes, all stay fresher longer when vacuum packed. Nuts and condiments maintain their flavor while rancidity is kept out.

For objects with sharp points and edges, such as bones or dried pasta, pad the edges with paper towels to keep them from puncturing the bag.

There are many non-food uses for vacuum packing. Keep camping supplies such as matches, first aid kits and clothing clean and dry. Keep flares for auto emergencies ready. Keep silver and collectibles untarnished.

Fill a bag about 2/3 full with water, seal the end (don’t vacuum). Freeze the bag and use for ice in the cooler, or ice packs for sports injuries.

Using the Deni Magic Vac above sea level (over 4800 ft)

The Vacuum Gauge is a device technically working on a differential basis since it measures the difference between external pressure (room) and the internal vacuum level. This means that, in the presence of the same internal vacuum level, the vacuum gauge change from yellow to green will depend on the external pressure. Thus, when using the Magic Vac above sea level, the vacuum gauge might not turn totally green when reaching the maximum vacuum level due to the altitude; however, this does not mean that the obtained vacuum value is lower than the vacuum achieved at sea level.
